Who Socked Travaline? He Says 'Ulizio', 
So Do Reporters; So Do Others; But Not So Ulizio

Who struck Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline, Jr., of Camden, in the Senate corridor?

Travaline said it was B. George Ulizio, of Pine Valley, campaign manager for Joseph S. Frelinghuysen, former U. S. senator.

Newspaper correspondents and other witnesses said it was Ulizio.

Ulizio said it wasn't:

"I was in Trenton Thursday," Ulizio said yesterday, "but I had no trouble with anyone. I do not even know Mr. Travaline. This must be a case of mistaken identity."

One thing is certain. The blow caused Travaline to lose his balance, trip over a topcoat he was carrying and fall to the floor.

The Assemblyman had entered the Senate chamber to consult with Senator Albert S. Woodruff, of Camden. Debate was in progress over ratification of the child labor amendment to the Federal Constitution. Senate President Richards, who was speaking, made the comment that some senators were not giving him attention;

"Believing my conversation with Senator Woodruff might be disturbing the chamber, I retired to the outside lobby at once," Travaline said. "I was talking there with other Assemblymen when I saw UIizio staring at me. 

" 'You get out of here,' he demanded to me," Travaline said.

"Though I did not know him at the time. I knew he wasn't a legislative officer or a state house officer and I asked, "Why should I?'

"Then, without warning, he grabbed my lapel. I had my topcoat in one arm and my files and papers in the other. I jostled him to free himself. Then he grabbed me by the throat with one hand and before I could do anything he struck me in the face with the other.

"The blow caused me to step back.

As I did so I stumbled on the tail of my topcoat and fell. I jumped up and was about to go after Ulizio when State Trooper John Callahan, on duty in the Senate, jumped between us.  

"I demanded that Ulizio accompany me to the basement where we could have it out with, my hands free. He just shook his head and ran into the private office of Senate President Richards.

"Though I did not know Ulizio at the time, he was identified to me by Senator Richards' secretary, Assemblyman Muir's secretary and Assemblyman Joseph Altman, of Atlantic, who knows him well. There certainly was no doubt that Ulizio was the man, whether he denies it or not."

Ulizio holds no official position in the Senate. He is well known in political circles, also a noted collector of books.

Open Break Between Camden and Atlantic Leaders Revealed
Assembly Debates Whether to Demand Apology From Ulizio

Trenton, June 5.-An open break between David Baird, Jr., and Senate President Emerson L. Richards, of Atlantic, was revealed tonight.

Richards issued a statement attacking Baird and Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline Jr., of Camden as an aftermath to a fight in the Senate corridor last Thursday afternoon.

Travaline alleges he was assaulted by B. George Ulizio, of Pine Valley, former Atlantic City real estate man, and close friend of Richards.

Earlier tonight, an Assembly committee was appointed to investigate the attack at Travaline's request. Ulizio has denied any knowledge of the attack but he was identified by several witnesses and by Richards himself in his statement.

Charges Insult

Hearing of the Assembly action, Richards declared:

“Assemblyman Travaline has made a nuisance of himself all during the session. I did not know it was he that was interrupting my speech last Thursday. After I was interrupted twice, he then left.

"He got out by the door and turned around and Ulizio heard him address an insulting remark to me which of course I did not hear because the door was closed. He and Ulizio got into an altercation which wound up in the outside corridor. Ulizio does not represent me in any way.

"Unquestionably Travaline was put up to making this attack by Baird, who was in the state house this afternoon. Apparently some of the Assemblymen, including Travaline, won't work and won't let the Senate work. They haven't added a single constructive thought this session."

Travaline Brings It Up

Arising on a question of personal privilege, Travaline brought the matter before the Assembly, declaring that he was assaulted "without provocation in the Senate chamber by B. George Ulizio, who ran for cover into the private office of the Senate President and hid behind the skirts of a woman."

When Travaline urged that the Assembly act, Assemblyman Herbert J. Pascoe, of Union, made a motion that a committee be appointed to call on Ulizio for a public apology. Assemblyman Theron McCampbell, of Monmouth, moved to amend the motion to provide that the committee first investigate the case and then report back to the Assembly. His amendment was defeated.

Debate 'Apology'

Assemblyman Joseph Altman, of Atlantic, majority leader, questioned the procedure and whether the Assembly had the right to demand such an apology. Then Assemblyman Clarence A. Ward, of Union, proposed an amendment that the committee confer with Senate President Richards. Assemblyman Anthony J. Siracusa, also of Atlantic, objected to this and Minority leader John J. Rafferty, of Middlesex, suggested that it be determined definitely by the Assembly just what occurred "in the corridor" before calling on the Senate President.

"This took place behind the reporters' desk in the Senate chamber," Travaline corrected. He was corroborated by Assemblyman Eugene W. Hejke, of Hudson.

Travaline then suggested that Ulizio could be arrested by the Assembly or be barred from the State House.

Offers to Drop It

When Siracusa suggested that the Assembly leaders confer with Senate President Richards and then report back to the Assembly, Travaline declared:

"Rather than see this whitewashed, I'd prefer to drop the whole matter and take care of it myself."

After more discussion Speaker Charles A. Otto named Majority Leader Altman, Minority Leader Rafferty and himself to confer with Senate President Richards, Senate majority Leader Clifford R. Powell, of Burlington, and Senate Minority Leader Blase Cole on the case.

Travaline charges that Ulizio struck him, forcing him to fall when he tripped over his topcoat, during an argument during last Thursday's Senate session. Ulizio, though admitting he was in the State House at the time, has denied any knowledge of the attack. .

Baird Control Charge Denied by Travaline
Assemblyman and Richards Lash Each Other After Ulizio Row

Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline Jr., of Camden, last night denied a charge by Senate President Emerson L. Richards that his remarks in the Assembly Monday night were dictated by David Baird, Jr.

Richards blasted Travaline Jr. for his declaration in the Assembly that B. George Ulizio, of Pine Valley, formerly of Atlantic City, whom he accused of assaulting him in the Senate corridor last week, was "rumored to be Senator Richards' campaign manager.   I

In a statement last night, Travaline Jr. charged the Atlantic county senator was making a "wild dash to ensnare the Republican organization nomination for governor of New Jersey" and forgot "details and personal feelings of individuals."

'Totally Unsportsmanlike'

Travaline Jr.'s statement follows:

"Following an incident rather unusual in the annals of the Legislature and which should have been dealt with in a dignified manner, as I tried to make it, Senator Richards, in an apparent attempt to come to the rescue of an individual who has been discredited in the minds of most people who know him, has seen fit to inject the name of an innocent and honest gentleman so as to take the light from the culprit and from himself. Up to the moment of this statement, I have not discussed, nor have I told Senator Baird of any of the details or even the outline of this incident in Trenton. As a matter of fact, I believe Senator Baird knows nothing more about this than he may have been able to read from the newspapers. It is a totally uncalled for and unfair and unsportsmanlike accusation that Senator Richards hurls at Senator Baird and is quite characteristic of the one who makes the accusation. As a member of the House and corroborated by the statements of two other members, even though of different political faith, who were eyewitnesses of the entire proceeding, one would think that the president of the Senate would be inclined to accept our word rather than that of a man of whom he says: 'I assume no responsibility for Ulizio. He does not represent me in any way.'

"Senator Richards, in his usual precipitous manner, according to authoritative reports, takes it upon himself to charge the members of the Assembly with being disinclined to work, and as not having had one constructive thought to date. To people who observe and appreciate conditions in the Legislature, it needs no stretch of the Imagination to discern that the work of all of the members of the Legislature, all of whom are conscientious ladies and gentlemen, is being impeded by the personal ambitions of the president of the Senate, who unquestionably is in a position of control and author­ity in the Senate. I am personally satisfied that every member of the Assembly, as well as every member of the Senate, has tried conscientiously to perform her or his duty up to date and are not disinclined to work and are not interfering with the program of Senator Richards, expect where the best interests of the people of this State are sacrificed for the blind ambition of Senator Richards to be his party's choice for governor. Senator Richards goes to great length to accuse me of being and having been a nuisance during the session by going in the Senate chamber and talking loudly. If this were true, Senator Richards is the presiding officer of the Senate and he has never to date made any com­plaint or even said as much as a word to me, indicating that my presence was not desired in the Senate.

"The whole situation, as far as Senator Richards is concerned, in my personal, opinion, is that he apparently forgets details and the personal feelings of individuals in his wild dash to ensnare the party's nomination for governor. It has been stated publicly on the floor of the House of Assembly that he has on more than one occasion insulted members of the Assembly.

"Specifically he insulted and later had to apologize to Assemblyman Chamberlain of Mercer county for having had him expelled from the senate floor, yet no one has dared to say that Assemblyman Chamberlain is not a gentleman. In addition, not more than a month ago, the personal aide and representative of Assemblyman Muir was sent to the Senate chamber on official business by Assemblyman Muir. He was expelled by direction and order of the Senate president for which incident Senator Richards received a stinging rebuke publicly on the floor of the Assembly.

Assemblyman Muir, threatened physically to eject Senator Richards if he ever dared again to visit the House of Assembly without permission. Furthermore, I have been advised that the clerk of the House of Assembly, Robert Purdy, a former member of the House, was in the Senate on official business and was ordered ejected by the Senate president, all of which was uncalled for. This is a course of conduct that denotes either that the world is wrong and Senator Richards is right, or that Senator Richards is wrong and the world is right."

Borden Honored at Dinner On Election as President Of Real Estate Commission 
250 Guests Attend Affair And Speakers Laud His Service 
Date Marks Twentieth Anniversary of Wedding
Of Popular Couple

Leading real estate brokers and notables in other callings paid high tribute last night to Edward J. Borden in honor of his election as president of the New Jersey Real Estate Commission. 

Before 250 guests at a testimonial dinner in the. Camden Club, 315 Cooper Street, Borden was presented a briefcase by C. Armel Nutter on behalf of the Camden County Real Estate Board, which Borden served three terms as president. The Chamber of Commerce, through Carl R. Evered, gave him a RCA-Victor auto radio. 

The occasion also marked Borden's twentieth wedding anniversary. Since the dinner to him was a stag party, Mrs. Borden was given a similar dinner at the same time at the home of Mrs. William A. Eppright, 223 Seventh Avenue, Haddon Heights. Eppright was chairman of the dinner committee. 

Career Traced 

"We need more men like Ed Borden in the world today," Vincent P. Bradley, of Trenton, whom Borden succeeds as president of the commission, said in the principal speech. The depression is weeding out the children of pampered upbringing and real men are coming to the front. Ed Borden came from a

"No man in South Jersey," said Carleton J. Adams, vice president of the New Jersey Real Estate Board, "is doing more for our profession than Ed Borden." 

Public Service Cited

William S. Abbott, president of the Camden County Real Estate Board, told of Borden's achievements as his predecessor, which included inauguration of "vandalism signs," offering reward for arrest and convictions of persons damaging vacant property.

Walter E. Edge of Atlantic City, former U. S. senator and former ambassador to France. is going to build a large home in Haddonfield ... Incidentally. the city made one economy move that is costing dough-de-oh­dough ... We refere to that day three months ago when nearly all the offices in the city hall were deprived of paper towels ... For now the municipal employes are using other paper and three times as much of it as they formerly used of towels ... So that the city has to spend more than it saves ... 

This week we heard one of the most ironical paragraphs of the year...Or any year for that matter. In a certain municipality (you guess) a man works for the relief committee doing odd jobs here and there .. He gets a salary of $6 a week (believe it or not, Mr. Ripley) ... So a couple days ago he asked his boss, who was the relief director, for some relief for himself, as he was hungry and didn't get enough money to buy meals regularly, let alone buy clothing .. So what do you think happened? .. Sure ... He was turned down ...

That pest (the one who used to claim he was Commander John D. Pennington's bodyguard) now says he has been selected as deputy U. S. marshal for this district to fill the vacancy caused by Paul McLaughlin's resignation ... By the bye, what former federal employee runs a whisper-low in Philadelphia and did so even when he worked for the government? .. It is, however, a respectable, or as respectable as speaks can be.

Why, every time it rains, is the rondpoint at the airport flooded? 

There's the reader who asks us to warn that suburban cop ... Who has been cheating for three years with a "Wrong Number, Sir" gal .. To his children, however, he is an idol. .. That South Jersey feller who shot his woman companion and then killed himself recently ... Both were buried in the same grave ... By his wife ... Because the dead woman's relatives couldn't be found and the widow wanted her to have a Christian burial ... So orchids to her ... And, incidentally. the reports that he had filed divorce papers were erroneous ... The wife had filed suit ... Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline Jr., who forgot to duck up in the senate cham bers not so long ago, is going to be married July 1. .. And on that same day a certain radio station attache and a Parkside girl are planning to surprise all their friends by getting married in New York .... Ooooh, the big tattle-tale ... But if you only knew who told us about it. ... He at tended Camden High School ... The bride-to-be attended Camden Catholic High .... 

That young local attorney accused of tipping off some prisoners that a news cameraman was going to photograph them and who also is alleged to have threatened to break the camera denies it all ... He says it was a cop who did all that. .. So that's that. .

Legislature Adopts Bill to Make Governor Boss of State Finances

Trenton, June 22 (Thursday)­ The Senate early today approved Senator Joseph G. Wolber's jury reform bill providing for appointment of jury commissioners by Supreme Court Justices. 

Senate President Emerson L. Richards, of Atlantic, failed to muster enough votes to pass the amendment to the state constitution to permit lotteries, a companion to the horse racing bill approved Monday night. He laid it over when he could obtain only four votes in its favor. 

The Assembly killed the Civil Service "ripper" bill affecting the State Highway Department, which was passed by the Senate Monday night. The vote was 22 for and 34 against. 

Two Named to Board 

Senator David Young, of Morris, and Mayor Frank Dorsay, of Perth Amboy, were nominated and immediately confirmed to succeed Firman M. Reeves and Abraham Jelin on the State Highway Commission when their resignations become effective September 1. 

The key bill of the Princeton survey fiscal reform measures was adopted by the Assembly and is ready for Governor Moore's signature. Sponsored by Senator Dryden Kusel, of Somerset, it will make the governor virtual czar over state spending by provision for a state finance commissioner who will be directly responsible only to the governor. The vote was 40 to 10. 

A snag was reached, however, on one of the other fiscal bills. Four were passed by the Assembly Monday night as adopted by the Senate two weeks ago, but a fifth, creating a new budgeting system, was amended in the Assembly to remove legis lative control of funds of professional boards. 

The Senate by a vote of 5 to 9, refused to concur in the amendment. Senate and Assembly leaders were in conference in an effort to reach an agreement.

A minor Assembly amendment in Kuser's bill was approved by the Senate. It eliminated the provision that the state finance commissioner should act as secretary of the state sinking fund commission. 

Assemblyman F. Stanley Bleakly, of Camden, aided by Assemblyman Marcus W. Newcomb, of Burlington, led the unsuccessful opposition to the Kuser bill.

Assemblywoman Isobella C. Reinert and Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline, Jr., the other Camden members, joined Bleakly in voting against the bill. 

Assemblyman Joseph Altman, of Atlantic, handled the bill on the floor and engaged in a lively verbal tilt with Bleakly

"The bill does not honestly carry out the Princeton Survey recommendations but merely adds another group of jobs, Including that of the finance commissioner at $10,000 a year, to the state government," said Bleakly.

Supporters of the bill pointed out that the Princeton Survey recommendations begin as follows: 

1. The creation of a department of fiscal control, consisting of a division of purchasing, accounting and budgeting. 

2. Transfer of certain functions of the state house commission to the commissioner of fiscal control, who shall be the direct agent of the governor." 

Deal Charged 

"This is part of the general scheme or deals which has marked this session of the Legislature," Bleakly continued. "We have plenty of machinery now to check on the state's finances and expenditures. There is the budget department, the purchasing department and the civil service department on salaries. This only adds another unnecessary department with about $30,000 in salaries."

In reply Altman said the bill was an economy measure, that it did follow the Princeton Survey recommendations and that no politics were involved.

In addition to the Camden members and Newcomb, Gurk, of Gloucester; King, of Morris; Kinzley, of Bergen; Mutchler, of Morris; Platts, of Essex, and Willis, of Ocean, all Republicans, voted in the negative.

Legislature Makes Sunday Beer Sales Legal
on O. K. of Local Ruling Bodies
Lawmakers Provide for Camden Bridge Fund to Aid Schools 

Trenton, June 22.-Sale of beer on Sundays after 1· p. m. and over bars is permitted in a bill adopted by the Legislature before adjournment early today. 

The bill, extending the present law from July 1 to September 1, provides that any municipality may authorize Sunday and bar sales by resolution. It differs from a similar bill passed in the Assembly Monday, but not acted on by the state, in that there is no provision for local referenda. 

The new measure went across in both branches of the Legislature after tempestuous scenes in the Assembly, where it passed on a second roll call, 31 to 18. Assemblyman Cunard, Republican, of once dry Salem, provided the necessary thirty­first vote. 
Three roll calls were required in the Senate before the needed 11 votes could be mustered. Senator Woodruff, of Camden, came in with the eleventh and there were five against. 

The measure was sponsored by Assemblyman Muir, blind Republican from Union county. As introduced, it contained no Sunday provision but during first debate it was amended for that purpose by Assemblyman Pascoe, also of Union. 

The Assembly roll call: 

For-Altman, Atlantic; Blank, Essex; Bleakly, Camden; Bradley, Essex; Burrell, Essex; Carpenter, Mercer; Cavinato, Bergen; Chamberlin, Mercer; Cunard, Salem; Doughty, Bergen; Fort, Essex; Gurk, Gloucester; Gratowski, Essex; Hunt, Cape May; Kinzley, Bergen; Hamill, Monmouth; Mutchler, Morris; Naughright, Essex; Otto, Union; Pascoe, Union; Platts, Essex; Preiser, Essex; Schock, Monmouth; Siracusa, Atlantic; Tamboer, Passaic; Travaline, Camden; Trube, Essex, Waugh, Essex; Willis, Ocean; Yuill, Essex-31. 

Against-Bischoff, Hudson; Bowers, Somerset; Bucino, Hudson; Dunn, Passaic; Galdieri, Hudson; Greenberg, Hudson; Gross, Hudson; Hejke, Hudson; King, Morris; Lance, Hunterdon; McLaughlin, Hudson; Newcomb, Burlington; Pesin, Hudson; Rafferty, Middlesex; Scheidemann, Passaic; Tinsman, Warren; Vavrence, Hudson; Walker, Hudson -18. 

Not recorded-Brown, Middlesex; Burke, Middlesex; Calabrese, Essex; Downing, Sussex; Maloney, Hudson; Muir, Union; Peters, Bergen; Reinert, Camden; Schroeder, Bergen; Turner, Cumberland; Ward, Union -11. 

Eight were recorded for the bill on the first Senate roll call. Senators Barbour, of Passaic, and Kusel, of Somerset, who were out of the Senate chamber were sent for and each came in and was recorded for the bill. The measure still lacked one to pass. 

Four Senators had refrained from being recorded either way. This group included Woodruff, who, however, voted "aye" when the roll was called for the third time. The final vote: 

For-Barbour, Passaic; Durant, Monmouth; Ely, Bergen; Kuser, Somerset; Loizeaux, Union; Powell, Burlington; Richards, Atlantic; Stout, Hudson; Wolber, Essex; Woodruff, Camden; Young, Morris.­11. 

Against-Barber, Warren; Cole, Sussex; Leap, Salem; Loder, Cumberland; Prall, Hunterdon.-5. 

Not voting-Albright, Gloucester; Read, Cape May; Reeves, Mercer -3.

June 23, 1933

Assemblyman Frank M. Travaline, Jr. commented on the passing of Clara S. Burrough, long-time principal of Camden High School:

"She was the most valuable public servant we ever had. She was a good disciplinarian and had a broad view of education. She tried to understand the problems of the pupils, parents and board of education. The high standard of the Camden school system and its high rating are attributable to her efforts. Camden has suffered a distinct loss."

Among Guests and Speakers at G.O.P.

Baird, Stokes Lash Richards Ambitions And 'Horse Trading'
Dinner to Reesman and Mrs. Verga Packs Whitman
Ex-Governor Denounces Roosevelt Program,
Hits Inflation


Bitter criticism of the "horse trading:” of the Legislature and the gubernatorial aspirations of Senate President Emerson L. Richards, were coupled with appeals for party loyalty and praise for Camden county's leaders at a dinner of the Camden County Republican Committee in Hotel Walt Whitman last night.

The dinner, one of the largest ever held in the hotel, was in honor of City Commissioner Clay W. Reesman, new chairman of the county committee, Mrs. Elizabeth C. Verga, vice-chairman of the county and state committees; Joshua C. Haines, former chairman, and Mrs. Isabella C. Reinert, assemblywoman and former vice chairman.

Tribute was paid them by a distinguished gathering of more than 500 national, state and county leaders. So great was the crowd that

 that the capacity of the main ball room was taxed and the junior ballroom was utilized also.

The attacks on "horse trading" and Richards were made by former Governor Edward C. Stokes and former United States Senator David Baird, Jr. Baird did not mention Richards by name.

Proud of Own Legislators

"We Republicans in Camden County have a faculty for victory," Baird said, "but we can and will help to defeat selfish aspirants to office if they don't play straight with the Republican party.”

"I am proud of the record of Senator Albert S. Woodruff and our Assembly members, Mrs. Isabella C. Reinert, F. Stanley Bleakly and Frank M. Travaline, Jr. They didn't take any part in the trading of judges, highway commissioners and prosecutors.

 "Camden County has been accused of not wanting civil service. When it came time to vote on the question Camden County stood by civil service as it always has, and beat the ripper.”

"Only when you play the game and stand four-square for the ideals of the party can you expect the people of the state to trust you."

"Whose Legislature?' Stokes declared:

"We won a great victory in New Jersey in the last presidential election. We did it by remaining loyal and not by trading with the Democrats.

“We thought we elected a Republican legislature. John Milton, Hudson County Democratic leader, however, says we elected a Republican legislature but the Democrats are putting on the show. But in that very paternal letter he wrote me not long ago, telling me what I should do and why I should not 'interfere' with' the Legislature, Senator Richards assured me the Republicans controlled the Legislature, I'm glad to know that for, of course:, Richards is always right."

Stokes predicted history would repeat itself and the Republican party soon would come back into its own.

"The party that stands by its principles despite defeat always comes back."

The former governor proposed two means of lowering the present high taxes and ,heavy expenditures.

"I wish this county committee and all those throughout the state would insist on legislation to prohibit municipalities from spending more than they have and from floating bond issues and I wish you would support legislation providing for a limited  local tax rate and providing for a gradual reduction of taxes to that maximum."

Doubts Roosevelt Plan

He expressed doubt as to the wisdom of some of the Roosevelt program. Inflation makes us prosperous, if revoking the gold standard aids us, amen, if calling 18 inches a yard will help us, that's' fine. If we can ask employers to sell us more and not throw more of our own workers out of work, that will be wonderful. But I can't understand how we will be aided by those proposals. It's too much for me."

He demanded that, France, England, and the other nations pay their debts, declaring they were spending five times their debts on armaments.

Congressmen Defend F. D. R.

Wholehearted support of all of President Roosevelt's measures which will promote relief from present economic conditions was pledged by United States Senators Hamilton F. Kean and ,W. Warren Barbour and Congressman Charles A. Wolverton.

Kean explained that he voted for the economy bill after he had been assured the president would not touch the compensation of those veterans whose injuries were service connected and that it was passed only because "pressure was brought to bear".   I

After paying tribute to Reesman and Mrs. Verga, Kean said:

"One of the first bills introduced by the new administration was the economy bill. This bill authorized the president to consolidate departments of the government, of which there are a great many overlapping and which could be done without any injury to anybody except those receiving salaries or emoluments there from. The bill also authorized the president to adjust the wages of government employees and to examine in and make new rules for those receiving pensions from the government. A year ago we tried to give Mr. Hoover power to do away with a lot of these offices that were unnecessary and useless. Mr. Hoover promised if he had the power that he would do so, but this was beaten by the Democrats, so that Mr. Hoover never had; the power to do away with these useless bureaus.

Economy Bill

"The history of the economy bill is this: After it was passed by the House, before they had time to read, it and under a special rule the debate was so limited that nobody knew anything about it before it was voted on, it was then sent over to the Senate and referred to the finance committee. In the finance committee a Democrat moved that the president should not have authority to reduce anybody's compensation more than 25 percent.

"Each senator voted for or against the measure or amendment under consideration. On this amendment, upon the call of the roll, the majority of the Democrats voted in favor of the amendment. Most of the Republicans voted against the amendment and it was a tie on the last Republican name on the committee. This was Senator, Walcott, of Connecticut, and he voted, "pay" on the amendment. This beat the amendment. Next was the question of reporting the bill out of the committee to the floor of the Senate. This was again a tie vote when it came to Senator Walcott and he voted '''aye,'' which reported the bill out.

Won on G. O. P. Votes

On the floor of the Senate the bill would not have passed but for the Republican votes. We were assured by the Democratic leaders that the president would not touch the compensation of those veterans whose injuries are service connected. In other words, the. wounded. When the regulations came out, some two months after this, bill had been passed, they had cut the wounded veterans to pieces.

"'When the president saw that the Senate voted almost two-third to take away this power from him, he got up some compromise formula which was not satisfactory, and got it passed by the House. This was submitted to the Senate and it was on this proposition that every Republican senator voted to support the Senate amendment rather than the House amendment, and I believe that had no pressure been brought to bear on the senators that every senator in the chamber would have voted for the Senate amendment, rather than for the House amendment."

‘Pay Tribute’

"I don't criticize the president, I pay him tribute," Barbour said. "He showed outstanding courage and initiative. He is taking a long chance in many respects and it is the duty of Congress to make the program succeed. It is the program of the nation and I hope it does succeed. However, I do not forget my loyalty to the Republican party. The test is coming this winter in the administration of these great pieces of legislation. I feel, it my duty as a. Republican not to play politics, but I shall raise potent protest against any unfair or unwise laws."

He praised Mrs. Verga and Mrs. Edna B. Conklin, of Bergen county, national committeewoman, who was among the guests of honor.

"I never would have been elected if it were not for the combined efforts of those ladies," he said.

Two future booms were launched.

Mrs. Verga for Senator 

"Some day when Senator Woodruff gets tired of being Senator, I hope to see Mrs. Verga as Senator or, if Congressman Wolverton would become Governor, I should like to see Mrs. Verga in his place; at Washington. She is marvelously capable of filling both jobs."

In response Wolverton laughingly said:

"That's the first time I ever heard a sober man nominate me for governor".

Wolverton's address follows:

‘Cites Relief Jigsaw’

"In the few minutes allotted to me, it will not be possible to speak upon several subjects· as I would like. I do· wish however, to touch briefly and in a general way upon what in my opinion should be the policy of the Republican party at this time with reference to national affairs.

"The economic condition that confronts our nation today, with its attendant paralysis of business, finance, industry and agriculture, creating widespread unemployment, destitution and need, has brought us face to face with an emergency surpassing in its possible consequences even that of the World War. Its devastating effect has brought distress to millions of our people.

"Demand for relief comes from every conceivable source. It is not confined to any particular class. Bankers, railroads, industrial corporations, farmers, homeowners, businessmen, sovereign states, local municipal governments, capital and labor, rich and poor, each with divergent views and often conflicting interests, but all with an insistent demand that each shall receive the particular kind of relief its individual need requires.

Defends Administration

"In answer to the demand of our people for relief, the president called Congress into special session. He submitted his program for relief and recovery to the Congress and it has been enacted into law. To provide effectual relief in the variety of ways made necessary by the different needs to be served required the entrance of our government into new fields of activity.

"There has been a disposition upon the part of some who hold representative positions in our party to criticize the enactment of such laws upon the basis that we have cast aside many of the fundamental traditions of our nation. Such criticism in my opinion is wrong. It overlooks entirely the serious emergency now existing affecting the welfare of our people and which in my opinion is sufficient justification for the enactment of such temporary legislation.

In times such as these, if we are to best serve our people, we cannot hold to the same course of action that has prevailed in other times.

"This is a time of distress and need- a time that calls for the application of new principles or a rearrangement of the old.

"Policies and principles of government set up and agreed upon in times of prosperity cannot be· accepted as standards in times of economic distress when the financial and industrial organizations of the country are prostrate and our pea pie in want.

Warns Of Criticism

'''Nor do I believe our party can gain public confidence by inaugurating at this time a campaign of criticism against the program and policies recently enacted by Congress It has not as yet had a chance or a trial. This is not time to be destructive denunciation without constructive proposals. This is no time to create doubt. It is a time when everyone regardless of party affiliations should co-operate to build confidence, dispel fear and create courage.

"What we need today is constructive co-operation by all political parties. Let each retain his party lines, but co-operate for the common good.

"As a party we must have the vision that will enable us to recognize that new conditions create new obligations and the necessity for the application of new and different policies of government to fulfill our entire responsibility.

"We must have not only the vision as to the necessity, but also the courage to do things which a few years ago would have been unthought of because contrary to accepted theories of what is a proper field of governmental activity arid unjustified under the prosperous conditions then prevailing.

“No Place for Politics”

"Let our thought be in terms of the common good, then there will be no denial of the necessity or the propriety of the government- in times such as these, assuming a responsibility to promote the general welfare and seeking, to fulfill that obligation by entering into enterprises or assuming functions, that otherwise would be unjustified.

"In this time of crisis, when we are seeking to relieve human misery, there is no place for small or mean partisan politics. Nor is this any time for demagogic utterances- this is a time for calm and deliberate consideration and judgment. A time when it is imperative that whatever gives promise of relief shall have our whole-hearted support.

"In conclusion, permit me to suggest that the greatest opportunity for our party in the days immediately before us is to give sympathetic consideration and support to those measures and policies that will best promote human rights. Our party had its origin in support of that great principle and the future measure of its success will depend upon the extent of our adherence to it."

Baird also declared he would support the president.

''Mr. Roosevelt is our president. Republicans will support him, in every thing which is for the bests interests of the country. All should wish for his success”, Baird said.

Sales Tax Urged

Mott urged that Republicans support a sales tax as the most equitable means of raising needed money.

"A sales tax would distribute the cost equally and would be more fair than the income tax. As we know from the hearings in Washington; some aren't paying their income tax, anyway."

Mrs. Conklin paid tribute to Mrs. Verga for her great political sense, ability and understanding of human nature.'              

She urged that all Republicans work as enthusiastically as a minority party as they did as a majority.

"We must go along and build until we become the majority again," she said.

Edge Sends Regrets

Walter E. Edge, former Ambassador to France, who was to have been the principal speaker, was unable to attend because he and his family are at their summer home in Maine. He sent a telegram expressing his regrets and his wishes for success to Mrs. Verga and Reesman. It had been reported Edge would be boomed for governor at the dinner but no mention of such a proposal was made.

The honor guests spoke briefly. Reesman asked for the support of the county committee and pledged himself to give all his energy towards the success of the party.

Mrs. Verga praised the committee members and thanked them for their support. She paid a special tribute o former Senator Baird.

"We have been successful in Camden County," she said, “because we still stand solidly behind our leader, David Baird." Her tribute was greeted by long applause.

Mrs. Reinert and Haines also spoke briefly pledging their support to the new chairman and vice chairman. 

Woodruff Toastmaster

State Senator Albert S. Woodruff was toastmaster. He was introduced by Carlton M. Harris, chairman of the dinner committee.         

The county committee presented a lounging chair to Reesman and a silver flower bowl to Mrs. Verga, as well as flowers to Mrs. Reinert and Haines. Flowers also, were presented to the new chairman and vice chairman by the Twelfth Ward Republican Club and the ladies' auxiliary, by the Young Republicans of Camden county through Harold Joyce, its president, and by the Bergen county Republicans, through Mrs. Conklin.

The dinner committee, in audition to Harris, was headed by Mrs. Pauline Caperoon, secretary; Mrs. Mary S. Hartung, assistant secretary, and William D. Sayrs, Jr., treasurer.

Camden Courier-Post - February 5, 1938

The way some of the members of the Camden County Republican Committee are behaving these days, the Democrats can stay home on their own meeting nights .... The Republicans are doing their work for them .... Now some 70 of the Republican committeemen have signed a petition to give Baird a job that won't pay him anything.... It's about time they're giving him something .... They took the U. S. Senatorship away from him .... Moore took the governorship away from him .... Woodruff took the state committeeship away from him .... The New Deal took the city commission away from him .... The New Deal took the freeholders away from him:.:. Somebody always is taking something away from Baird ....

It isn't a question of Baird's ability to fill the bridge job .... The only one to even mention that as an issue was Fred von Nieda .... He's a city commissioner, you know .... It's a matter of principle .... At least, that is what Florence Baker, state com­mitteewoman, says .... Mrs. Baker is telling Senator, Clee and others at Trenton that they owe it to Baird to support him for the job because he has always helped Clee ...Let's, in all fairness to Baird, look at the record .... In the primary, during an address at the First Ward Republican Club, Dave Baird stated he was for Cliff Powell against Clee .... Mrs. Baker did not come out against Clee .... She didn't come out against Powell. Instead, she said she was neutral. In the general election, Mrs. Baker said she was for Clee. Baird never said he was for Clee. (If he had, Clee's majority of 35,000 would have gone to Moore) ....

So we don't think that Mrs. Baker is very convincing when she tells Clee that Baird helped Clee .... She said that the Camden county legislative delegation helped Clee's program against Hoffman. Was Baird a Democrat last year? Sheehan, Roye and Lodge were .... Burling was a Republican, and helped Clee, but he is not for Baird. Perhaps it was because Baird "helped" Clee's program against Hoffman opposition, that Hoffman slipped in Baird's appointment without the knowledge of Burling or the state or county committee members .... Mrs. Baker stated at a banquet that she has copies of the Courier-Post in 1931 in which Baird was praised for his bridge work .... If anyone cares to look at our files, we will show what Mrs. Baker said about Baird in the neighborhood of 1931. ... Or what we said about Baird at other times .... Also what Mr. van Nieda and Frank Travaline said.

But enough ado about nothing .... All we've done is talked about Baird when it had been our plan instead to talk about politics.

* * *

The political ax is hanging over the head of a Mt. Ephraim official on the charge he is assuming too much authority ..... The political ax hanging over the heads of the Delaware township cops is about to be enmeshed in litigation .... One of the policeman is a member of the P.B.A. which will carry his fight into court in a case that will be a precedent for the other township cops, too .... Herb Taylor will be county engineer if it goes to a Republican .... It may be a Democrat however, and newest among the candidates, on that side of the ledger is former City Commissioner Carroll P. Sherwood .... There may be only one assistant county solicitor instead of two in which case it will probably go to Carleton Rowand, city school board member .... 

By the way, don't, be surprised if under the new contract between the city and county on maintenance of the City Hall, the city takes full control of the building with consent of the county ... Which will be tough on some of the county jobholders ...* * *.

Assemblyman Allen now denies he wants all us newspaper fellers to go to the guillotine ... He says he meant lawyers ... Charlie Humes wants to be guillotined ... Standing up ... Incidentally, Charlie is defending his last-place position in the ping-pong league tonight… Firefighter Lennox went to church the other day… And found the roof braced up. When will the borough of Merchantville fix up that dangerous hole in Browning road at the railroad tracks north of Maple Avenue? ... Or is that in the township?

Whenever the state police want Detective Wojtkowiak at the prosecutor's office, ·they ask for "Sergeant Watchyourcoatandhat" … The Mt. Ephraim commissioners are going to buy a police car for their chief ... He's also in for a pay rise ... Bellmawr's chief of police won't get the salary increase he wants, but he will get an additional allowance for the use of his car ... Runnemede's two new cops will also get pay increases …

The other day an alarm was sent to every police department in the county and also to the Philadelphia cops that a car had been stolen in Audubon ... The culprit is glad no cops saw him ... He was none other than a police official who wanted to borrow a storekeeper's car but took the wrong one by mistake ... His face is almost as red as Vince (deP) Costello's ... At the K. of C. roller skating exhibition the other night, Luke McKenna did a few fancy turns ... Vince recalled he, too, had been pretty good at one time, so he essayed to show his friends ... His intentions were better than his legs, and a couple of well-­wishers followed him around the floor with a stretcher.

This all happened quietly The Runnemede police received a complaint from two storekeepers ... It appears that a group of high school students from another town had stopped off at Runnemede to purchase some cakes ... Several other articles disappeared from the stores ... A few days later the dean of the high school went to Runnemede paid one shopkeeper $10 and the other $2.60 ... Representing the goods they said were taken ...

Aside to that clairvoyant weakly editor who reported yesterday that Joe Van Meter is going to be the Republican nominee for sheriff: A sheriff cannot succeed himself in New Jersey ... Silvio Fittipaldi, former Haddon Heights High star, is a veterinarian and doing nicely ... A Philadelphia college professor who lives in Pennsauken uses his spare time writing a book ... Home by 4.30 p.m. from work, he retires at 8 p.m., rises at 3.30 a.m., writes for four hours, breakfasts and goes to work ... The Playcrafters are busy rehearsing "Post Road" for Feb. 18 and 19 ... A warrant is in the mails for a suburban doctor ... Illegal operation ... Fred Homer. Merchantville song-bird, had an audition in New York recently before the Metropolitan Opera Audition Committee ... What Collingswood shopkeeper's missus is having trouble getting a costume for a minstrel show? ... They're still looking for better buses on Route 14 ...

Carlton Rowand told this one at a dinner the other night… The foreman on a western WPA job wired Farley for more materials to finish the job ... "We need 2000 shovels in a hurry," the foreman wired ..."We ran out of shovels," replied Farley. "Let the men lean on each other."
